We proved Dorset ‘Can Do’ it – we won a top national recycling award for our county-wide recycle your aerosols campaign, which ran during the summer.
This was a joint campaign with other Dorset councils to encourage more aerosols recycling. It was designed to highlight that empty deodorant, hair spray, air freshener and furniture polish aerosols can all by recycled as part of your kerbside recycling collections. You can also take them to our mini can recycling banks, which are often located in supermarket car parks.
The Awards presentation recently took place in Christchurch, where the Director of British Aerosol Manufacturers’ Association (BAMA), Sue Rogers, presented local dignitaries with the covetable prize – a £1,200 changeable graphic advertising display system for a recycling vehicle. An engraved trophy and framed certificates were also presented.
